Middle aged sound tech ,

Excellent podcast for church techs!

I’m one of a few sound engineers at my local church and I ran across this podcast a few months ago. It has been refreshing hearing techniques and stories that kind of reinforce my knowledge of what I’ve learned in the industry. James and Samantha are very knowledgeable and their conversation is very enlightening and entertaining at the same time.

Amazing Integrators

The interviews with integrators and manufacture reps are great. I am learning so much about where the industry is pointing and heading outside of just my market. Super informative and helpful.
